Cowboys lineman Collins signs extension worth up to $17.4M

OXNARD, Calif. (AP) Dallas Cowboys offensive lineman La'el Collins has signed a two-year contract extension worth up to $17.4 million, earning a payday that eluded him when a police investigation kept him from getting drafted two years ago.

Collins, who will get $9.5 million in guaranteed money, was considered a first-round talent out of LSU in 2015 but wasn't selected after his name surfaced in the probe of a woman's death just before the NFL draft. He was soon cleared, and chose the Cowboys in free agency on a fully guaranteed $1.5 million, three-year deal.

The agreement Tuesday came a day before Collins' 24th birthday, and he said the contract "means a lot to me and my family in so many ways."
